Raw Vegetable Diet

David Wolfe on the Importance of Eating Greens

Whether you're eating cooked food or are on a raw vegetable diet, everyone knows how important vegetables and fruits are. How come then, that we're not eating as many as we should?

How come that the two only servings of vegetables for many people are french fries and tomato ketchup? (I'm not kidding, in the US they are considered servings of vegetables!)

"The biggest issue we are facing with our culture today is the lack of eating green vegetables. If people would do that, we would see a revolution in our food industry. And it's already starting to happen." David Wolfe

Watch this outstanding video of (raw vegetable diet guru) David Wolfe where he talks about the importance of eating greens.

Why eat greens?

All greens are alkalizing, and all contain:

  • calcium;
  • iron;
  • folic acid; and
  • magnesium.

Some examples of great green vegetables:

  • broccoli;
  • kale;
  • lettuce;
  • celery;
  • spinach.

How best to eat greens?

Run them through a juicer, and you will get all the benefits of these plants within 15 minutes.

That's how quick a vegetable juice is absorbed by your digestive tract, into your blood. This way you'll get the most benefits out of vegetables fastest, juicing vegetables when you're on a raw vegetable diet. (Go here for vegetable juice recipes.

You could also make a green smoothie. You may add some fruits for taste. (Click here if you want learn how to make smoothies and green smoothie recipes.)

Where To Find Organic Greens?

What to do when it's hard to find fresh vegetables in your neighborhood? People are powerful. You can start your own little COOP. You can find 5 or 6 people and order from an organic farm nearest you.

Or grow your own vegetable garden. Then you're completely in control of your food. One of the best solutions to all problems we're facing today is growing your own vegetables. This is better for the economy and environment. It will "ground" you, because it will connect you with the soil.

And, when you put your own love into your food, it tastes better. Like mothers' home cooking tastes better than anything you can buy in a store or fast food restaurant. Everybody knows that. It's not explainable scientifically, but it's true. It's the same thing when having your own garden.
